|Shot Star - ShoeString Systems|
"I first became aware of the ""Shoot Star"" game when it appeared on the cover of BYTE Vol1 #1 (that's right....the very first one!). It was written in 8080 assembler code and used a tape recorder to handle the message strings (due to the fact that the target machine only had 4K of RAM). Because I had a 6800 based machine, I had to translate, hand-assemble, and then type the hex-codes in by hand. I then sat up all night and played the game....it is truly addictive...
